Known flaws (many are due to the usual '73 sound system problems or
waterlogging of the set 1 reels):
D1t02 (Rider): brief bits of static/diginoise @ 2:37, 2:39, 4:34, 4:36 - Fixed by Seth Jackson
D2t04 (Playin'): dropout @ 19:03 - Fixed by Seth Jackson

The split points on the new versions of Dark Star and Truckin' may not exactly match the split points on the original versions. Therefore, avoid combining the new versions of these tracks with the original versions of Dark Star, Truckin', or Morning Dew.
Two nights later was at the Felt Forum for the NRPS (Ramblin Jack Elliot opening) show, with Garcia, Keith, Weirt, Donna joining for most of the show, including a bluegrass set in the intermission with Garcia on banjo. Incredible.

1 bit of trivia, the cover of Neil Young's "Time Fades Away" album is a concert audience photo (with a Rose on the stage) actually taken at this show. You can clearly see my friend Dave in the 2nd row.
Subject: whats not to like
Subject: "What A Waste"!
A+ show all around. Been listening to this one since '88.
Anyone who doesn't appreciate how AWESOME Bob Weir is needs to listen to this China > Rider transition. (or any '72-'74 transition).
Subject: Another good 73' show
Subject: Sweet '73
Once again Playin' kicks ass
And all this while mourning for Pigpen, wow.

Subject: Best China Rider jam?
Subject: Amazing Show!!!
Subject: That Playin' is bad ass..
Subject: Streaming Audio sux
Subject: Yo - What about the incandescent Playin
Subject: Greatest Greatest Story?
Whole shows great though, another notable and underated part I think is the The Promised Land>Bertha>Greatest Story Section, it's really intense energywise and the dead at their most rockin' by traditional standards this show. However I love all of this show from start to finish, China>Rider, Ramble On, TLEO, Row Jimmy, Playin', Truckin', Dew, Sugar Magnolia all great.
Subject: What show is this?
Subject: unavailable on 4/5/05
Subject: One of those shows
Subject: Clear, and sweet
Perfect sounding show
Subject: Feelin Groovy
Subject: New York....1973
They open with a great China>Rider, Straw and close set 1 with a blistering Bird Song, Playin'. This Playin' is a real mind bender. After the 2nd chorus, Jerry immediately steps on the wah-wah and off we go. He finds a few nice grooves and before you know it, 20 minutes has expired. Set 2 also shines. Berth>Greatest is a real treat as is set closer Sugar Mags. However, the real fireworks occur during the Dark Star>Truckin>Dew segment. The noodling in Dark Star is sweet with all members in total sync and Jerry's voice during Dew is outright spooky.
This show is a real keeper from the Spring 1973 run.
